Chilton to carry out Russian demo

Max Chilton to appear for Marussia in Moscow event this weekend
Max Chilton is to take part in a demonstration event with Marussia in Moscow this weekend.

The Briton will be in action at the Moscow City Racing event, with a series of demonstration runs set to take place on Sunday on a specially constructed circuit on streets surrounding the Kremlin.

Now in its sixth year, the Moscow event is set to be a huge draw for fans with little over a year until the inaugural Russian Grand Prix is due to take place in Sochi in 2014.

“There have been quite a few 'firsts' for me in my debut season in Formula One - new racetracks, new cities, meeting new fans - and Moscow City Racing will be my very first visit to Russia,” Chilton said. “I can't wait. From what I hear from previous events, the demonstration runs are a fantastic spectacle and the crowd is huge and very supportive.

“That's nice, because we are the only Anglo-Russian team and it is good to keep building on their love of Formula 1 before Russia gets its very own race next year in Sochi. I'm really excited about making the trip and I hope to meet as many of the Russian fans as possible, when I'm not driving through their streets!”

Team CEO Andy Webb the team was looking forward to making an appearance in front of the Russian fans during the event to thank them for their support.

“The Marussia F1 Team are very excited to be returning to Russia to participate in the Moscow City Racing event for a second successive year,” he said. “As the only Anglo-Russian team in Formula One, this event has become a very important date in our Team calendar, as we continue our determined efforts to bring more of F1 to Russia and more of Russia to F1. This is our opportunity to get closer to the fans and for them to see our car and drivers right on their doorstep, not just on the TV.

“Our drivers Jules Bianchi and Max Chilton are enjoying a flying start to their exciting debut seasons and the Marussia F1 Team really is going from strength to strength now, making good progress towards its long-term ambitions. We look forward to a fantastic crowd in Moscow and to expressing our thanks for all the incredible support we receive 'back home' in Russia. We have seen the strength of that support again in the last few days following the very pleasing announcement of our new powertrain partnership with Scuderia Ferrari. It seems the fans share our optimism for the future of the Marussia F1 Team.”
